WMS Bedtime Story Sketch

Today is the very first Waltzingmouse Pajama Party -  you can check out all the details on the Waltzingmouse Blog.  Come along and join in the fun!   There are 3 challenges that were revealed a week or so ago so you could get a head start on your projects (they need to be linked within 24 hours) -  and tonight the 4th challenge - the Bedtime Story Sketch -  is being revealed! (you have a week to create and link up your sketch card)

Bedtime Story Details

Each Pajama party will end with the Bedtime story sketch - this will be a sketch challenge that we will present to you on the night of the pajama party, you will see the sketch and some inspiration samples on the Pajama Party blog post and you will have one week to link up your challenge cards.

Don't forget, throughout the pajama party we will be looking out for that special person to join us as a guest DT member during a future release!

Hope you can join us! And do invite your friends!

So -  here's the Bedtime Story Sketch for this month!

and here's a card I created using the sketch!


I used several WMS stamps on this card today -  the flowers are from You're a Doll (I used the cut files for this set but you could just as easily hand cut these flowers!), the green strip is stamped with Crackle Reverse Mini (I LOVE this little stamp! It's stamped twice here to cover the panel.), the background panel is Cabin Plaid Background and the sentiment is from Vintage Garden Seed Packet.   Two of the flowers are up on foam dots and I added rhinestones to the center and below the sentiment!

I'm also adding a card for the 1st challenge - Tickle Me Silly

I can't wait to see what you all come up with using this sketch -  You have a week to create your card and link it up over at the Waltzingmouse Blog    (The Tickle Me Silly, You're a Doll and In the Background Pajama Party challenges have to be linked up within 24 hours)  Thanks for joining us!
